Knightdale Farmers Market: Its always fresh…at the Station

A “delicious” summer and fall tradition continues to Knightdale Station Park through the month of October, as you can support your local farmers and businesses while picking up some of the freshest produce you will find anywhere at the Knightdale NC Farmers Market.

Striving to give area vendors an outlet to supply local residents with the best seasonal produce around as well as high quality handmade and homemade goods, while giving them a greater awareness of local agriculture and a place to sell their goods, the Knightdale NC Farmers Market runs every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. from May through October.

Another weekly feature at the Knightdale NC Farmers Market are the always popular Food Trucks. With the enormous popularity of both the “Food Truck Thursday” events and the “Food Truck Rodeos” held at Knightdale Station Park, the Knightdale Parks and Recreation Department officials who organize the Knightdale NC Farmers Market decided to bring in the trucks each Saturday this year as well.

The “Drive-Thru Market” is also still available at the Knightdale NC Farmers Market. This will be available during those weeks when the weather is not cooperating. In case of rain or inclement weather, there will be updates via social media to announce that the “Drive-Thru Market” will be taking place and you can pick up your goods while still in your car at the coned off area along Station Run Road. The “Drive-Thru Market” will be open weekly regardless of weather to cater to those with handicap tags, so they too can enjoy the fresh local tastes available each Saturday.

There will be live music provided by some of the area’s most popular local acts at most of the Knightdale  NC Farmers Market events throughout the summer and for the little ones in the family, “Kids Corner” will be open and follow along with activities in accordance with each weekly theme.
